The potential of air cushion vehicles for operation in arctic and subarctic terrain is discussed and critical problem areas identified. The various programs conducted by the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory to obtain solutions to the problems are presented. The programs include the development of terrain data significant to air cushion vehicle design and operation, the study of the effect of air cushion vehicle operations on terrain, and the study of the effect of the arctic and subarctic environments on the air cushion vehicle.
